I am not someone who enjoys beer and was not overly excited when I saw this tour as part of a business trip itinerary. However, our tour guide Katie quickly won me over with her charming personality and interesting facts about the company and building as well as the beer making process. I was surprised and impressed by the atmosphere... More

If your touring the area and you love beer, you have to stop by here in the summer. The atmosphere is good, they serve complimentary beer when you enter. You don't have to take a tour but its worth the price considering you get beer to go with it. We live in Toronto and we still tend to visit this... More

Not only is the history of this brewery rich with a funny story behind it, but the beer is really delicious! The tour starts and ends with the delicious and refreshing brew and takes you on the journey of making it from start to finish. On our tour, we even got to see one of the owners who was on... More

I have been a Steam Whistle fan for years. If you are ever in the area, this is a must see. The offer tours of the brewery, free samples, fantastic atmosphere and staff. But the best thing is the beer - hands down the best beer EVER.

We attended a family wedding that took place at the Steam Whistle Brewery. It was fantastic. Small wedding but the venue was absolutely beautiful. Beautifully decorated; the food was fantastic; the service couldn't be beaten; I was very impressed with this venue.

Our group of 8 went over to Steam Whistle after our visit to the Aquarium. The tours weren't scheduled to start for an hour, but they agreed to start one in 30 minutes. We went in and were offered a complimentary sample of their beer. I am not typically a beer drinker - this stuff was excellent. I love that... More

Spend time here evertime we go to a Jays game. They were so nice for my brother's birthday. They game him a free beer, gave him a badge that said "it's my birthday" and they had this plastic moustache that goes over the neck of your beer bottle and mades it look like you have a moustache when your drinking...

These guys know how to make beer... in my opinion, the best Lager Pilsener in the world. Even my son-in-law who immigrated from Cologne (Germany) loves it. Steam Whistle beer is an example of how successful can be combining the modern technology (filtering etc.) with the old crafty know-how. No beer lover visiting Toronto should miss it.
